Teeny Tiny Avocados

June 5th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

The smooth, buttery texture of a ripe avocado is pretty irresistible to us. We think the avocado is one of nature’s most perfect foods. Native to Mexico and Central America, and known earlier in their history as alligator pears, they’re technically berries containing a single seed, and classified as flowering plants. While most flowering plants are quite lovely to look at, we definitely have a preference for plants we can eat. How to eat them? Oh so many ways. Slice them in half, scoop out the seed, and eat the pulp with a spoon. Stuff each pitted half with tuna or chicken salad. Or crack an egg into each half, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bake – that’s really delicious. Of course, you can go the classic route and mash the Avocado’s flesh into a spectacular guacamole – that’s really never a bad idea.

We’ve taken the availability of Avocados to new heights with the introduction of Trader Joe’s Teeny Tiny Avocados. The name is cute, but not entirely accurate; these emerald-fleshed gems are not that small. They’re personal, single-serve, “where have you been all my life”-sized Hass Avocados. Every mesh bag contains six of them, six Avocados of just the right size to slice into your salad or smoosh onto your toast. No waste, no wrapping up the other half for another time and hoping it’s still good when you’re ready to eat it. Trader Joe’s Teeny Tiny Avocados are a dream come true for true avocado aficionados. Of course, you can use the whole bag at once and make guacamole. No one will stop you.

We’re selling each bag of six Teeny Tiny Avocados for $2.69*, a great big value. Look for them in our produce section.

*Ounces, price and availability may vary by region. Currently Trader Joe's Teeny Tiny Avocados are $2.69 in our West Coast and Texas stores, and $2.99 in our East Coast, Midwest and Southeast stores.
